This Waybill Analysis publication is the twenty-fifth consecutive annual report since 1950. The publication provides data on the railway freight movements within Canada and a summary of rail traffic by type of rate. It indicates the pattern of commodity rail shipment and the relative distribution of the various categories of freight rates applicable. The source of this data is a one percent continuous sample of railway waybills which are classified into six major commodity sections containing over 300 commodity subsections. The freight traffic is further defined by origin and destination for three major geographic regions in Canada (Maritime, Eastern and Western).
